It's time for the Crane brothers sports club squash tournament, and Frasier is expecting to be teamed with Niles again but he has other ideas: as they have been eliminated in the second round for nine years in a row, Niles has decided to team up with Jim Braggett (something of a poseur) in the hope of doing better. Understandably, Frasier is upset at his brother's actions but luck is at hand when Chelsea Gray (played by Jeanne Tripplehorn), a girls' gym teacher, walks into the room. She and Frasier briefly met some time ago and mentions that she is looking for someone to team up with her for the mixed doubles. Frasier is reluctant initially but when he sees her hit a great ball at Jim Braggett he agrees. This decision pays off handsomely when Chelsea and Frasier win the mixed doubles tournament. This delights Martin as his son has finally brought home a trophy that doesn't have a book on it, while Niles is a bit jealous of his brother's achievements and hopes he can do just as well ...

Clever Turnabout
2 November 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is one of the most interesting episodes. It is, at first, pretty pedestrian. Frasier, a squash player, teams up with a beautiful gym teacher and ends up part of the mixed doubles champions. But, for him, PE was horrible in school. So what the writers did was to have the new characters appear as those of the childhood. It is not preachy but makes a substantial point.
